How does it work?

It is entirely up to you when you have a Chatter & Natter table. Designating a table for as little as one hour per week to all day every day is fine You know you're customers better than anyone.
 
When you have decided, all you do is pop the sign on a table of your choice on that day/s and time/s. This will let customers know it is a Chatter & Natter table. 
We believe that sometimes you have to just let things be, and it can take time for people to get their head around something new. All we ask is that you consistently designate a table when you say you will and let staff know what its all about. 

How does The Chatty Café Scheme make money?

In a nutshell, it doesn't. The contents of the pack plus postage costs £8.00 to post out. We ask for £10 a year to cover the £8.00 starter pack, the website and to keep the scheme sustainable. 

I don't understand something or have a question.

No problem! Just give us a ring on 07917 586 160 or send an email through the contact form on the website. 

I type in my area but nothing comes up, even though I know there are local cafes involved.

When you search for a location, google will search for venues from the centre of that area. For example, if you type in Manchester then click search, it will search within 5km of the centre of Manchester. You would need to increase the radius to find places outside of the inner city centre. 

I'm searching for cafes in my area but nothing comes up.

Although there are now lots of Chatter & Natter tables, there are still lots of parts of the UK with no cafes involved. If you think a local café might be interested then either email the name and location of the café to us on the contact page of the website or go in and tell them about it! 

What do I get for £10 a year?

For just ten English pounds per year you will receive a very lovingly put together box which contains an a4 plastic table sign, poster insert, leaflets, door/window sticker and an A4 and A3 poster. 
 
You will also see your venue listed on this website and our social media. 
 
Having your venue on the website means that more customers will find out about you and it shows you care about the community. You will also receive four e-newletters per year and be part of a national scheme to reduce loneliness and get people talking!
